Bangkok--7 Jun--ABM

Mr. Victor Seah, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Nestle Indochina, joined other Nestle executives and employees under the Nestle CARES Project to collect waste and clean up Bangsaen Beach in Chonburi to support World Oceans Day, which takes place on June 8th every year. The Nestle team collected waste from the beach, mostly small items of trash including plastic straws, rubber bands, and bottle caps. They then sorted the waste for reuse in social projects such as the Rubber Band DIY Physical Therapy Tool by Burapha University, which turns used rubber bands into a body-stretching device to help heal and strengthen children, hospital patients, disabled people, and the elderly.

The plastic straws are used in another project Nestle supports in collaboration with Village Health Volunteers (VHVs), which is the "Healthy Pillow" project. After being collected, discarded plastic straws are cleaned and sterilized then used to stuff pillows that are distributed to bedridden patients in households and hospitals to help prevent bedsores.

Nestle helps to educate Thai people to be more aware about plastic waste and how it affects the environment, so they manage it more responsibly to reduce the impact on nature and take a more sustainable approach to living. The company also collaborates with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), such as a recent project in which volunteer staff from Nestle's water factory in Surat Thani, together with volunteers from Nestle's other business units in the southern region, collected waste from a beach in Surat Thani to help improve the area where the company operates its business. In another conservation activity, Nestle arranged together with WWF for the release of over 300,000 baby blue swimming crabs on Koh Sed to help rebalance the Thai marine ecosystem.
